I'm Greg and this is my virtual book den where I talk about books, films and anything else that comes to mind. I've always been an avid reader and I enjoy promoting authors and discussing my favorite books with others. I also do freelance writing and have written for the Knights of the Dinner Table magazine and the SF blog SFSignal.

https://snazzybooks.com/about/

This blog is mainly to share books Iโ€™ve read, whether good or bad, along with other stuff I think is interesting or worth recommending. As well as reading lots I love crafty stuff, make up, fitness, shopping and delicious food. I decided to start this blog mainly because I noticed a lack of blogs about adult fiction in general, compared to many blogs focusing on Young Adult books. Now that Iโ€™ve got more deeply into the blogging world I see there are actually lots of amazing blogs focusing on adult fiction, but I didnโ€™t realise that when I started this blog! Still, whatโ€™s one more eh? ๐Ÿ™‚

If you would like to request a review, please send me an email with a brief description of your book and the buy links. Please DO NOT attach any files to your request for review. I will let you know if I'm interested in reviewing your book. I cannot review every book submitted to me because of the overwhelming number of submissions. Please, no horror, true crime, memoirs, or children's books.

My name is Tracy and Iโ€™m a bookaholic. Itโ€™s been 35 minutes since I last bought a book and despite having over 450 books on my kindle, 200 books on my bookshelf I canโ€™t stop buying more books. I receive loads of books to read from the publishers and Netgalley โ€“ but will only be recommending the books that I think are brilliant. Some you will agree with me about, and others you will hate โ€“ and thatโ€™s what makes reading so wonderful. Enjoy!

I try to review everything I read, although I have a policy not to review Allthing that I feel to be below a 3 star rating on the book review blog. I truly believe that even though it may not be to my taste, every book has its audience, even if it is not me.

The Lesbian Review is the home of book reviews done by women who absolutely LOVE lesbian fiction and who are not just going to read and enjoy every lesbian novel out there. We read a lot and are a tough crowd to please. But that is great news for you because it means this book blog only showcases lesbian fiction books that are really good. If we don't like it, we don't review it.

I focus mainly on independent/small press and self published literary fiction. My preferred format is printed/bound books, though I have reluctantly moved into the digital age and accept ebooks for review (PDF and .mobi). I am open to working with various authors, publishers, publicists, and literary agencies - reading and reviewing ARC's and backlist titles. I would love to hear about your book as well.

So you want to find a book blog?

If youโ€™re a voracious reader, you might think of a book blog as an oasis in the middle of the desert: a place on the Internet that brims with talk about books, books, and more books.

Well, good news โ€” we built this directory of the 200 of the best book blogsย to satiate your thirst. Take a walk around, use the filters to narrow down your search to blogs in your preferred genre, and feel free to bookmark this page and come back, as we do update it regularly with more of the best book blogs out there.ย 

If youโ€™re an aspiring author, you might see a book blog more as a book review blog: a place where you can get your yet-to-be published book reviewed. In that case, youโ€™ll be glad to know that most of the book blogs in our directory are open to review requests and accept indie books! We expressly designed this page (and our book marketing platform, Reedsy Discovery) to be useful to indie book authors who need book reviews. If youโ€™re wondering how to approach a book blog for a review request, please read on.ย 

Youโ€™ve found a book blog. Now what?ย 

Letโ€™s say that youโ€™re an author, and youโ€™ve found a couple of book blogs that would be perfect fits to review your book. What now? Here are some tips as you go about getting your book reviews:

  • Be sure to read the review policy. First, check that the book blog youโ€™re querying is open to review requests. If thatโ€™s the fortunate case, carefully read the blogโ€™s review policy and make sure that you follow the directions to a T.ย ย 
  • Individualize your pitches. Book bloggers will be able to immediately tell apart the bulk pitches, which simply come across as thoughtless and indifferent. If you didnโ€™t take the time to craft a good pitch, why should the blogger take the time to read your book? Personalize each pitch to up your chances of getting a response.ย 
  • Format your book in a professional manner before sending it out. Ensure that your manuscript isnโ€™t presented sloppily. If the book blogger asks for a digital ARC, you might want to check out apps such as Instafreebie or Bookfunnel.ย 
  • Create a spreadsheet to track your progress. Wading through so many book blogs can be troublesome โ€” not to mention trying to remember which ones youโ€™ve already contacted. To save yourself the time and trouble, use a simple Excel spreadsheet to keep track of your progress (and results).ย 

Looking to learn even more about the process? Awesome ๐Ÿ‘ For a detailed guide, check out this post thatโ€™s all about getting book reviews.ย
